Last night he achieved another one of his ambitions, to win another major title.
I feel it has been a long hard campaign for David. It has not been easy for him by any means. There was a lot of talk about him coming to the US just based on money and endorsement purposes. Selling his franchise if you like. David doesn’t need to do this. He is already a global brand. Its Beckham.
Beckhams return to LA was hostile. The reception he received from the fans wasnt pleasant, but being the true athlete and person that he is, he was fully aware of it, and realized he had to be prepared for it. There was a lot of taunting and booing during his first few games back. The fans didn’t want him…shirts were burnt, a very disrespectful approach toward him. course, this got to Becks, wouldn’t it anyone? – but all of this nonsense would only make him stronger.As, the seasons went on, I think he gained an awful lot of respect. Not only in his games and dedication but off the pitch aswell.
The MLS playoffs were upon us and the Galaxy were looking good – After hard work, patience and unity they were in the MLS Cup final against Houston Dynamo.
After the break the Galaxy came out fighting. It was their game to win – For the fans, for themselves. David still looked out the game, tiredness was showing in his movement and facial expressions…Then out of no where the famous trio stepped up. Beckham, Keane and Donovan helped create the play and the Galaxy were one up. This really killed the game, if there was any sort of game really being played. Not a very high level of football being played I must admit.
What is next for the Beckhams?…….that we will just have to wait and see – my thoughts? I think that was his last game for the Galaxy, let him ride out into the sunset. – On to the next chapter….
David Beckham, I salute you.
